House Intel Chair Won’t Seek Re-Election, Plans To Host Radio Show


House Intelligence Committee Chair Mike Rogers (R-MI) announced Friday morning that he will not seek re-election.

Rogers announced on Detroit radio station WJR that he plans to step down at the end this term to host a radio show beginning in January 2015 that discusses conservative and national security issues, according to the Detroit Free Press.

A report Thursday night had indicated that Rogers planned to step down as chairman of the House Intelligence committee, which his office denied.

Rogers has been committee chairman since 2011 and served in Congress since 2001.
